FALL 2022 LUC 201 CONCEPT Connections Courses
LUC 201 A: The Wild 1960s in America
Instructor: Dwayne Beggs
In this course we will be exploring the radical shift that took place during the 1960s. Drugs, Sex, Rock and Roll, the Vietnam War and the anti-war movement all played a significant role in the country’s move from “traditional values” to a more liberal position. Join us as we examine each of these aspects, seeking to understand how they were each infused into American culture and Society and the impact they have had on America to this day.
LUC 201 B: Cooking with Gubi
Instructor: Sister Barbara Vano
This course will provide an opportunity to explore basic cooking and baking skills (from scratch), become more comfortable with seasonings, and check out a few kitchen tools. By the end of the semester, you’ll be inviting friends for dinner! **Please note, this class will meet biweekly.
LUC 201 C: Parenting in America
Instructor: Michelle Rose
This course will introduce students to the study of parenting in the United States. How have parenting styles and advice changed over the last two centuries? Which parenting practices appeal to Americans today? What factors (institutional, cultural, economic) make the job of parenting easier or harder? Which parenting issues will matter most to you, the next generation of parents?
LUC 201 D: Adulting
Instructor: Nina Wright
What do people really mean when they talk about the “real world”? Are they referring to life after college? A first professional job? Getting married? Setting a budget? In this course, we will discuss some of the new (and expanded) categories of responsibilities and challenges that people face and develop a tentative definition of what it means to be an adult. Some of the categories that we’ll discuss include: work etiquette, personal health and safety, handling communication challenges in this new world, and de-stressing.
LUC 201 E: Let’s Do Toledo
Toledo means different things to different people – for some it is home, for others it is far from it. In this course, students will study multiple facets of the city of Toledo. They will examine its history, industries, attractions, and demographics, while also having the opportunity to reflect upon their own experiences of the city. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to be active citizens by engaging with other members of the community. Students will become more attuned to the many features of Toledo, whether they are brand new to the area or life-long residents.
